Re: m43 instead of FF

If Fuji wanted to extend the X-brand beyond ASP-C, my preference would be for a sensor size even smaller than u4/3.  Something more along the lines of Nikon 1 - a small sensor in a light body with "good-enough" IQ that leveraged the X series lenses to get something like a 3x crop factor.  u4/3rds is just too similar to make a meaningful difference in zoom IMO.

I do love the idea of a super-light body that I could carry in my kit that doubles (or more) the effective zoom range of my lenses.  I'd only pull it out when I need that zoom factor, as I assume it would be much lighter than carrying a 200-400 (for example) to compliment the 55-200.

As long as they give that body the cool Fuji UX it would be a great addition to the line.  But I'd like to see a few more lenses first.
